Brick Ties for Brick Work
Brickwork walls are constructed of an outer Shell that is thin and must be restrained against buckling. The wind loads must also be transferred on to the load-bearing walls. Depending on the material used to construct the inner load-bearing wall, suitable restraining ties are used in restraining the outer shell brickwork walls on to inner load-bearing walls. HRST restraining ties can be securely and reliably used to restrain the brickwork walls against horizontal loads.Brick ties are made out of round steel and have wavy forms for embedding into mortar joints. There are two versions that are used for brickwork load-bearing walls and concrete load-bearing walls.
